Micron the Kitty - big journeys begin with small steps.

Let's start with something small.

I designed Micron in April 2013. I made four of them, gave one to my friend... and lost the others. Maybe I'm not meant to make microamigurumi. 

First version of Micron Kitty

Micron the Kitty

Gauge: is not important.
Size: using 1,1mm hook gave me about 1,5cm tall cat.
Abbreviations (in US crochet terms):
sc - single crochet
hdc - half-double crochet
dc - double crochet
sl st - slip stitch
ch - chain
blo - back loop only
sc2tog - 2 single crochets crocheted together (if you find it hard to make it the
proper way.. just skip one sc, no one has to know, right?)
Materials: I used three strands of 6-strand embroidery floss, you'll also
need mustard seeds or other filling and some acrylic paint or mad embroidery skills :)


Rnd1: sc6 into Magic Ring
Rnd2: 2sc into each sc across (12)
Rnd3: sc in blo of each sc
Rnd4-7: sc in each sc (12)
Star stuffing, I used mustard seeds, because it gives this tiny creature a nice
weight :)
Rnd8: [sc in next sc, sc2tog] 4 times (8)
Rnd9 sc in each sc (8)
Rnd10: 2sc into each sc across (16)
Rnd11: sc in each sc (16)
Rnd12: [sc in next 2sc, sc2tog] 4 times (12)
Rnd13: sc in each sc (12)
Rnd14: TRICKY one!: sl st in next sc, ch1 [sc, hdc, ch2, sl st into 1st ch, ch2,
sl st] into next sc, sc in next 2sc, ch3, sl st into 2nd ch, [hdc, sc] into next sc,
sl st into next sc, [sc, sc2tog] 2 times
By this point you should have 4 scs in front of head, and two ears with 2scs
between them.
Rnd16: sc into each of 2sc between ears, sc into each of 4 other scs (6)
Rnd17: sc in each sc (6)
Bind off sew the hole, and holes that are near ears.

ch11, sl st into each ch, starting with 2nd one from hook. Attach:)
I painted eyes and face with acrylic paint and a pin. Also added a collar.
